Writing Your Own Script: A Parent’s Role in the Gifted Child’s Social Development

Writing Your Own Script: A Parent’s Role in the Gifted Child’s Social Development

By Corin Barsily Goodwin and Mika Gustavson

Authors of Making the Choice: When Typical School Doesn’t Fit Your Atypical Child

Parents of asynchronous children are often criticized as “helicopter parents” for being overly involved in their child’s social development; others take a hands-off approach out of fear or self-doubt. In this book, Corin Barsily Goodwin and Mika Gustavson, authors of Making the Choice: When Typical School Doesn’t Fit Your Atypical Child, have turned their focus from finding the right academic environment for your child to exploring what we need to know and how we know when we are doing too much or too little to create age- and intellectually appropriate social opportunities for our children. Includes explanations of Dabrowski’s Overexcitabilities, stages of friendship, and how to address conflict with others in a variety of situations.

Available in print at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and for Kindle and Nook.
